Boehner: I Don´t Need
GOP to Pass Gun Law...

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/12/2013 11:51:37 AM

On Thursday, in the midst of ongoing national debate over prospective gun control and comprehensive immigration legislation, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he didn’t need the approval of a majority of his own party to move forward with legislation. Referring to the so-called Hastert Rule, named after former House Speaker Denny Hastert (R-IL), which dictated that House leadership not bring up any bill for a vote without the support of a majority of the majority party, Boehner said, “Listen: It was never a rule to begin with.” Then, realizing the gravity of admitting

Very heavy sigh. This makes me want to weep tears of anger and frustration.

Since Crying John is my Representative, I have called so often that the staffers know me by name...

And they have gotten to the point of hanging up on me too. I guess John Boehner is now too good for his constituents, and knows what is best for us!

Boehner´s first thought was not to listen to the majority. His thought isn´t about the country or it´s citizens. I bet he is taking bribes.

He is beyond redemption. He should have been replaced last year. Remember they re-elected him as speaker!

He´s speaker because 220 members of his caucus voted for him. Why not wait and see if anything passes the Senate and comes to the House before we get worked up. Breitbart has been on a mission lately to stir up trouble and divide Republicans.

Why would you want to pass a gun law John? Your party is against it and the Democrats are almost universally for it. And more than likely it is unconstitutional.

He may not need they for this bill, but he will need them for a whole lot of other bills. And the rank and file isn´t happy with him to begin with. Boehner may have to play a tight rop game. He can pass a bill with significant enough modifications that it can´t get through reconciliation. And do it with the majority of Dems. Just the Rebublican amendments have too much poison to make the bill acceptable to the Senate. Thus killing the bill. And Boehner can give his party cover to vote against it while claiming to the Kneepad Media that the Rebublicans worked with the minority socialist/fascist to pass ‘common sense’ gun control. Boehner and the party can pull this off with discipline and achieve strategic victories.

Those of you posters who want to blame BrietBart sound like lib trolls to me. BrietBart isn´t the one who made the statement, Boehner did and it follows other statements and "give-in" actions that clearly show Boehner not to be conservative or someone who will fight for original Republcan ideals. And, as others have said, to "just wait and see what happens" is the action (or inaction) that has gotten us where we are today, on the doorstep of a purely socialist nation.

Posters #6 & 9 have the right idea. And I don´t see anything in Boehner´s statement that surrenders anything or opens floodgates. What do some of you expect him to say - something like, "The gun grabbers can go [bleep] themselves"? Great red meat for conservatives, sure - but then, hoo boy, THEN you´d see a stampede of weak GOP House members head straight into the arms of the "common sense gun control" Democrats.

The headline is overly alarming (as Breitbart´s stuff often is), Boehner is assessing the political terrain and no one is going to take his place as Speaker - except, perhaps, Pelosi.

We live in hard times. A dumbed-down electorate, hostile media and a clever demagogue president combine to make a direct charge at the Union center a bad way for us to go. You can call or e-mail your congresscritter if you want, or stockpile guns & ammo, but in the end we´re just going to have to sweat this out.

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., blasted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., on the Senate floor for restricting amendments to the omnibus spending bill and bitterly denounced the legislative process. "So we have one person out of 100 [who] decides what amendments will be acceptable and what aren´t," Coburn said, referring to Reid. "Jefferson has got to be spinning in his grave, because he wrote the original rules of the Senate." Coburn reminded his Senate colleagues that the amendment process was an essential part of the bill process as it encouraged negotiation to generate consensus. "When we have a czar running the Senate

PRESIDENT OBAMA: North Carolina still has a higher than average unemployment rate so this is important to this state. Folks aren´t looking for a handout, they´re not looking for special treatment. There are a lot of people who are sending out resumes every single day, but the market, the job market is still tough in pockets around the country.

A program to refund insurance companies for losses incurred during the implementation of President Obama’s health care law could impose significant costs on American taxpayers, but under regulations issued by the Department of Health and Human Services, those costs won’t be known until the summer of 2015. Republicans led by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rep. Tim Griffin of Arkansas have called for repealing what’s known as the risk corridors program, which has also been described as a bailout of the insurance industry. Under the program, insurers have to estimate the amount of money they expect to pay out in

In Nelson Mandela´s celebrated 1994 autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, the late South African leader and Nobel laureate was careful to distance himself from communism. However, in the original manuscript--quietly published online in 2011 and 2012, and only recently noticed--Mandela openly sympathizes with communism and the Soviet Union, and calls the "US brand" of "imperialism" the "most loathsome and contemptible." Mandela´s original text, smuggled out of prison by fellow inmate Mac Mararaj (now the official spokesperson for South Africa´s fourth democratic president, Jacob Zuma), was written in the 1970s amidst a period of decline in American power, scholar James Myburgh notes

She is married and has three children, and for a few weeks last fall, she couldn’t afford her birth control. Her condition, to her, was not entirely good news. “I weighed out the pros and cons,” she said. “But I didn´t want to have another baby.” Susan asked her gynecologist about getting an abortion, but the doctor said she didn’t perform the procedure.

No one will have read the law; this is government by press release.
